A 50 mile day from Eureka, CA to Weott, CA through the start of Humboldt Redwoods State Park. This ride takes you from the pleasant sea side city of Eureka to the famed Avenue of the Redwoods in the state park.

The first 25 miles take you away from the ocean on a fairly flat farm plain, but around mile 30, you are plunged into a forested paradise among the giant redwoods. The ride, outside of Eureka is rural and fun. The roads become hillier as the day moves on.
